Howe responds to ‘debate’ questions

The North Carolina Association of Broadcasters excluded Libertarian candidate Barbara Howe from their first gubernatorial debate, broadcast from the taxpayer-funded UNC-TV studios in Durham.

Libya, Afghanistan and the Middle East — Why Obama and Romney are Both Wrong

Posted: 09/14/2012 7:44 pm

Interventionism serves no national interest

by Brian Irving
Libertarian Candidate, 2nd Congressional District
